Clackastigmat 6.0

The Berlin based photographer Oliver Möst uses his visual impairment (short-sighted) as an actual visual power and transfers it to a special technique of photography: He reconstructed his AGFA CLACK, by attaching his own eyglass lens (strength: 6 dipotrine), wich deeply blurs any picture. In a recent interview with the berliner TAGESSPIEGEL, he states, that seeing the world in a blurry mode, makes it somehow more relaxed. It makes it also more comfortable to concentrate on things, e.g. listening to music (“macbeth at the opera was beatiful – beatifully blurry”).
